Fall under the spell of The Lippincott House, a sumptuous, beautifully proportioned family home whose architectural heritage could not be more impressive. Now extensively enlarged and meticu-lously renovated, it was designed and built as American architect Roy Lippincott's own home in 1927. Lippincott was responsible for some of Auckland's most significant commercial buildings and worked for pre-eminent prairie-style architect Frank Lloyd Wright before coming to Auckland.

High and handsome on a sought-after, nearly 1,200sqm of very private, freehold land, this dis-tinguished home hides in glorious sun behind electric gates among immaculate manicured gardens. Resplendent with classic character including simple leadlight windows and built-in shelving, the design provides the perfect balance of large, light-filled formal entertaining, relaxing and family areas.

On a half level down to the double garage and wine cellar, a versatile media workroom/5th bedroom (with own entrance) opening to a terrace was Lippincott's original office. Contemporary touches enhance traditional interiors where striking modern chandeliers, white shutters and textural sisal carpets generate a sophisticated ambience.

Summer is more fun thanks to the easy connection between the generous, high stud casual area to substantial sunny decks and a new swimming pool. From the sleek marble kitchen, you can watch children play outside. Upstairs the spacious master suite captures sea views and a large walk-in wardrobe complements a dedicated dressing room in the unsuited.

Covet a wonderful family home that is an incredible architectural treasure. Call Steen today.
